RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 70230729 LA English T1 Naked in the marketplace : the lives of George Sand A1 Eisler, Benita., PB Counterpoint, a member of the Perseus Books Group PP New York YR 2006 SN 1582433496 9781582433493 AB "Acclaimed literary biographer Benita Eisler sheds new light on the many roles, triumphs, and losses that together constituted Sand's overwhelming presence. The author of nearly ninety novels, twenty-thousand letters and thousands of pages of autobiographical writings and political commentary, how did Sand also have the time to live? As Eisler reveals, hers seems like several lives - literary, political, amorous, and domestic. Earlier biographers have either cast Sand as a feminist icon or blurred her in the dynamic of "child of the century." Naked in the Marketplace captures Sand's essence - the outsized public persona and the inner woman, along with the unique and irreplaceable role she played in the history of her times."--Jacket.
